What is a party without friends to celebrate with? It’s easy to create a Facebook event to invite all your dog friends and their humans to, but if you want something a little more personal invitations like the one below are an adorable way to invite the whole wuf-pack!
2. Deck The Howls
Balloons, streamers, confetti oh my! Decorations are the easiest way to transform your party from "woof" to "wow"! Think outside the box for how to turn regular birthday party decorations into paw-some ones. For example, draw paw prints on balloons or hang paper tennis balls from streamers! Whatever decorations you choose, pick a colour theme of 2-3 colours and match your decorations accordingly.
